Following guidance from state public health officials, the City of Greeley will open Centennial Pool and the Island Grove Splash Park on Saturday, June 20 with limited hours and restrictions due to COVID-19.
Greeley officials believe with the right procedures, the community can start using these recreation resources.
To accomplish this, Centennial Pool will open for limited public swim times. Each of the two-to-three swim times a day will limit attendance to a maximum of 50 people at a time. These public swim times require advance sign-up for two-hour blocks of time to help regulate the number of guests in the facilities at one time – in accordance with state regulation. City staff will clean the facility between swim sessions. Additionally, reservations can be made for lap swim. Lap swim times limit reservations to six people per each one-hour time slot. Read more.
